There is a bad news for the fans of video sharing site Vine. Its owner company Twitter announced that it is killing the struggling mobile app, so you will not be able to upload any more new videos of your short experiences. The website will stay online and keep all the videos which are uploaded before the announcement was made but it’s not clear for how long they will stay online and it is also not cleared if you will be able to upload new videos on the site or not.
Giphy to the rescue
After the announcement the fanbase became very disappointed, many of whom took to Twitter to express their outrage. Amongst all this bad news there is a ray of sunshine. Giphy.com came to the rescue for the Vine fans. Today, Giphy offered disgruntled Vine users a lifeline: the ability to transfer their existing video content to the animated image site.
As Twitter’s earlier announcement specified The Vine.io website will not be shut down, but instead will act as a digital archive for the videos. An importation tool will be offered as an alternative means of saving that content. It is not specified when the tool will be available, Giphy only stated that “it’ll be launching very soon”.
So , are you sad that Vine is dead?
